If you’re prepping for a trip, a visit to Ayers Leather will set you up nicely, whether you want a full set of elegant luggage or a basic phone adapter or a passport sleeve.
Deb Ayers, who runs the shop with her son, Payton, greets every customer. After seventy-two years—her parents started the business when she was six months old—she knows the inventory backwards and forwards. A top choice for travelers is the shop’s Voyager line by Jack Georges.
Made of hand-stained buffalo leather, these full-grain items, in brown, black, or honey with easy-clean striped linings, build patina over time and will last through decades, or even lifetimes, of intrepid travel.
